New theory explains electronic and thermal behavior of nanotubes
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have made an important theoretical breakthrough in the understanding of energy dissipation and thermal breakdown in metallic carbon nanotubes. View News Article (2006-01-20)

Boiling breakthrough: Nano-coating doubles rate of heat transfer
By adding an incredibly thin coating of alumina to a metal surface, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have doubled the rate that heat travels from a solid surface - such as a pot on a stove - into the liquid in the pot.  View News Article (2012-02-16)

Researchers generate hydrogen without the carbon footprint
A greener, less expensive method to produce hydrogen for fuel may eventually be possible with the help of water, solar energy and nanotube diodes that use the entire spectrum of the sun's energy, according to Penn State researchers. View News Article (2008-07-16)

UCLA physicists create world's smallest incandescent lamp
In an effort to explore the boundary between thermodynamics and quantum mechanics - two fundamental yet seemingly incompatible theories of physics - a team from the UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy has created the world's smallest incandescent lamp. View News Article (2009-05-07)

Northwestern researchers develop bistable nanoswitch
Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have been under intense study by scientists all over the world for more than a decade and are being thought of as ideal building blocks for nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS). View News Article (2006-10-16)

UCLA researchers demonstrate fully printed carbon nanotube transistor circuits for displays
Since the invention of liquid crystal displays in the mid-1960s, display electronics have undergone rapid transformation.  View News Article (2011-12-01)

Armchair science: DNA strands that select nanotubes are first step to a practical 'quantum wire'
DNA, a molecule famous for storing the genetic blueprints for all living things, can do other things as well. In a new paper, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) describe how tailored single strands of DNA can be used to purify the highly desired "armchair" form of carbon nanotubes. Armchair-form single wall carbon nanotubes are needed to make... View News Article (2011-08-04)

Jefferson and Delaware researchers combine tiny nanotubes and antibodies to detect cancer
By coating the surfaces of tiny carbon nanotubes with monoclonal antibodies, biochemists and engineers at Jefferson Medical College and the University of Delaware have teamed up to detect cancer cells in a tiny drop of water. View News Article (2005-11-17)

The original nanoworkout -- Helping carbon nanotubes get into shape
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a new method of compacting carbon nanotubes into dense bundles. View News Article (2007-06-07)

Rice professor's nanotube theory confirmed
The Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, has experimentally confirmed a theory by Rice University Professor Boris Yakobson that foretold a pair of interesting properties about nanotube growth: That the chirality of a nanotube controls the speed of its growth, and that armchair nanotubes should grow the fastest. View News Article (2012-01-31)
